  • Could have been so much better


    We arrived after dark and had a difficult time finding the property because it’s VERY dark. Also a long outside staircase that is dark. Might have had better lighting, but we couldn’t find out how to turn it on and no instructions were given. Then the TV in the main house did not work. I messaged the owner through the VRBO app, but no one ever responded. Had a big, beautiful 75” TV that did not work all weekend and had to watch college football on an iPad. Saturday evening, we we’re going to use the grill. Both propane bottles were empty and the grill was filthy, so we cooked inside. Discovered the kitchen cooktop was fueled by a propane bottle meant for a outside BBQ grill. The small cottage’s bathroom smelled strongly of mildew. In short, not as safe and well maintained as it should have been.

    We had 13 people stay and so enjoyed this house and cabin. Our entire family of 6 kids and their significant others stayed. Everyone was comfortable and enjoyed their time!!! We will stay here again hopefully next year! Thank you for having a great property and excellent communication as we maneuvered so many people to one place! It was excellent.
